NFC scan - seriously flawed functionality?

NFC scanning with appsheet seems “broken” but hopefully there’s a fix!

When scanning NFC tags that contain URL data the first part of the URL is cut off and breaks the links every time. At first I thought it was an issue with bytes allowed in the Text type column but after some googling I found this Topic that seems to establish the text type column can hold a single line of an undetermined length that makes me think it’s not a data type problem but something else entirely.

Please take a look at these screen shots showing the tags actual payload vs the AppSheet scan result.

Tag 1 payload = appsheet.com | Scan Result = heet.com





Tag 2 Payload = community.appsheet.com | Scan Result = unity.appsheet.com




Tag 3 Payload = community.appsheet.com/t/clarification-on-differences-between-text-and-long-text/23576/12?u=kalani_hardwoods | Scan Result = munity.appsheet.com/t/clarification-on-differences-between-text-and-long-text/23576/12?u=kalani_hardwoods

I really need URLs to work…
Hoping to get some visibility on this so please chime in with your thoughts!

Thanks,
